Clara Kimball Young,
Two married pairs of neighbors -- John Bunny and Flora Finch; Wally Van and Lillian Walker -- set out to prove whether men or women are more jealous in this Vitagraph comedy.
John Bunny was Vitagraph's biggest star at this time and was often paired with Miss Finch. with their contrasting physiques, they were a sure comedy pair. Wally Van was also a successful movie comic actor. The director of this movie, George D. Baker, was frequently the director of Bunny's comedies. when Bunny left Vitagraph to go back on the stage, Baker eventually left the company to helm Metro Pictures.
Although the slapstick comedies of Keystone and its imitators were enormously popular, it would not be until the rise of Roscoe Arbuckle and Charley Chaplin that situational comedies like these were swamped. VItagraph would not enter the fray in that particular genre until 1916.
If you wish to see this Bunnyfinch -- as the lead pair's comedies were called in the industry, a good copy can be found on the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
